So, I am listening into the Billy Sloan Show earlier (still listening now as I type this out) and he read out some listener comments about the best gig, album and single of 2018. After he read some words about Simple Minds, he went onto say “they are bringing out a new album and will be on tour again. I can’t say too much now but all will be revealed in due course. Simple Minds are set for a very busy year in 2019.”
WOAH! HOLD THE PHONE!
STAYED TUNED FOLKS!
UPDATE: Next morning: okay, well…I’m not sure where the “tour” bit came from that I heard. I suppose I had jst been talking “tour” wth a friend just a few minutes before and it stuck in my mind and stayed there. I hadn’t been well, so that’ll be my excuse. But, to reiterate, Billy did say that a new album s coming and that Simple Minds will have a busy year ahead. But…we’ll see! My eyes will be kept peeled and my ears will be kepyt to the ground.
Lol. Cherisse sharing a pic on her Instagram account. Jim seems to have a new job as a pizza restaurant’s sandwich board man.
One would assume the need for strong, sturdy legs made him a shoo-in for the job.
A great set of fan photos here shared by kind permission from Gillian Spencer. Thank you!

Well, it seems like the Oz fans got an absolute treat tonight – and La Diva (aka Laird Dash Fandango – Mr Kerr) seemingly was showing off a new shirt. Suits you, Sir!
I can’t say how much I wished to have been there. I am absolutely GUTTED I couldn’t make ot out there! 💔😟
Next time is a certainty. No matter when it happens…2019, 2020. Some promoter out there, PLEASE WANT THEM BACK NEXT YEAR, PLEASE?!
In the meantime, here is a short video clip and some images of the show used by kind permission by the wonderful Ally Scott. Thanks for letting me post these here, Ally. Love you, beautiful lady! ❤️
Cherisse and Sarah having a wander about my beautiful home city. Lucky ladies! Oh, I miss home!
OH, BUM! Sorry it came out sideways!
I was hoping to highlight a different photo in the set – a beautiful one of Jim – and had contacted Angel for permission to use the photo to link to the set. He had granted permission for use but wanted to watermark the image in question first and asked me to send on a link to which photo I wanted to highlight.
From there I had no response. I’ve waited a few days, and was reluctant to badger the man, so will highlight his wonderful images via this route instead. And you’ll see the pic of Jim I was hoping to highlight in amongst the set anyway. You can view the full set by CLICKING HERE
